We can all learn something from young Jack Clark who described his recent fundraising adventure as “awesome”.
On 26th April Jack, aged 10, successfully completed the Warrior Adrenaline Race to help raise funds for DENS. On his fundraising page he said that he was taking on the challenge “because it’s a fun way to raise money!”
The Warrior Adrenaline Race combines a 5k run with a number of challenging obstacles including a zip-wire, wall climb, monkey bars, and lots of mud!
The obstacles and course were designed by ex-army physical training instructors so are not for the faint hearted.
Jack took the race in his stride though and finished with a smile.
Although he aimed to raise £200, Jack almost doubled his target taking a total of £380. On completing the race Jack said, “The race was really fun and my favourite obstacle was where you had to climb big steps really high and then jump off the end onto a massive airbag.
It was exciting raising money for DENS because every time you get more it makes you happy.”
